Adesanya vs Silva is the Right Fight

It was recently announced by a number of sources that Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon to face Middleweight prospect/contender Israel Adesanya. “The Spider” has not fought in nearly two years, and will be days shy of a year layoff at UFC 234 in February. “The Last Stylebender,” however, has been extremely active, fighting 4 times in 2018, winning all of them with 2 finishes, most recently over Derek Brunson. Many critics are saying this is a dangerous fight for an aging Silva and criticize the UFC and Dana White for condemning Chuck Liddell’s fight while announcing this one in the same breath. HOWEVER, this is truly the fight to make for both parties.
